++ MUST HAVE ++

Richard Prince is an avid collector of books, an obsessive one.

Bibliothèque d’un amateur. Richard Prince’s Publications 1981-2014 is not a catalogue raisonné, it instead takes a look at the library of an amateur, an excuse to apprehend this aspect of Richard Prince’s work which encompasses books and the question of the collection and its incompleteness, revealed here by the ‘ghosts’ of the missing books.

„In some ways, I was always struck by how Ed Ruscha had the title Twentysix Gasoline Stations before he had the photographs. And in many ways Richard Prince is one of the most significant artists who’s contributed to the language of artist’s books since Ed Ruscha. The artist’s books themselves are ways in which he carries on art under a different language, but they are artworks. A way of carrying on art between cover, so to speak. And it wouldn’t shock me if in some ways the entire collection existed for the sake of a book at the end of that. The ultimate artist book of books.“ (John McWhinnie quoted by George Pendle, 2009)
